to massachusetts? i will talk to the architect of both plans in minutes. >>> the president's meeting with the leader of iraq. exactly what kind of military help is that country seeking from the u.s., and will it happen? >>> in office politics, down to its last days? i talked to cnbc's carl quintanilla about the problems with blackberry. >>> and how much money could this work of art fetch? it's in today's list of number ones. >>> hello, everyone. it's high noon here in the east, 9:00 a.m. out west. welcome to "weekends with alex witt." he's back with a whole lot to say. mitt romney on today's "meet the press," talking about the comparisons between romney care in massachusetts and obama care. >> and perhaps the most important lesson the president failed to learn was you have to tell the american people the truth. what when he told the american people you could keep your health insurance if you wanted to keep that plan, period, he said that time and again, he wasn't telling the truth. i think that fundamental dishonesty has put in peril the whole foundation of his second term. >> curren
? >> right. the white house continues to point to massachusetts where 123 people enrolled in the program the first month. that number steadily grew. >> speaking of massachusetts, i thought it was fascinating yesterday, the same man that accused mitt romney of killing a woman, remember that? mitt romney killed my wife. remember that commercial? he was such a beast, a horrible human being. mitt romney killed my wife. barack obama believed that. >> obama did not claim that. the president did not say that. >> hillary clinton wasn't running against him in 2012. >> this commercial was put together by some sort of arm. >> somebody very close to barack obama. barack obama takes responsibility, the buck stops with barack obama. >> okay. >> barack obama and his campaign and people connected to his campaign and people closely associated with him in the past claimed that mitt romney killed a woman. >> okay. the story is bad enough, you don't need to do that. >> can i please make my point? i'm going to say it again, barack obama, his campaign, they all claimed in 2012. it was one of the most horrific
that massachusetts enacted in 2006 under governor romney. >> we can reasonably expect the numbers will grow substantially over the next five months as they did in massachusetts which enrolled only .3%. or 123 people in its first month. we know from experience in the bay state that people tend to research and consider their options talk things over with their families before making a purchase. >> joining me now, from "the washington post," and professor of economics at mit who worked on the massachusetts health care reform law and -- the affordable care act. okay, professor, it is up to you to tell us how -- the affordable care act is doing, compared to the early days of the massachusetts law. >> the big issue, it is too early to make a strong conclusion. the bottom line is people don't sign up until they have to. >> we are doing better than massachusetts. as secretary sebelius said .3% in massachusetts. 1 1/2% of the federal level. goal of 7 million. that is not a relevant comparison. relevant comparison happen in march. we need new focus on not the week to week and day-to-day, to date. >>
gruber is one of the architects of the massachusetts health care law known as romneycare and an architect of obama care. now we are learning there were quite a few architects of obama care. you are one of them. thank you very much for being here, professor. here's my question. the 5 million people, what if the insurance companies don't go along with the fix? what happens to them? >> the individuals have another month to buy insurance before they have to have plans before january. >> on health care.gov? >> right. they could go on and buy plans f. not, state insurance companies will have to work together to find a way to get a lot of people to keep their insurance. >> the last part is terrifying. >> well, we have to understand the context in which this is happening. these individuals are seeing their insurance policies cancelled often because they are substandard policies. >> let's not go there. >> our viewers know about the policies. i want to talk about what will happen to them. you have 5 million people, many of whom are watching now. the last part you said is very concerning that the st
, that enrollment in the first month would be low. that is the experience we saw in massachusetts. and it is the experience we expect here because especially for healthier younger people, the pattern of behavior is to shop around to wait before you purchase when you don't have to purchase before december 15th in order to have insurance on january 1st, which the earliest possible date for coverage. we expect that pattern to play out with the marketplaces in the affordable care act. secondly, the fact that the website has been so challenging and so problematic in that first month means that the enrollment numbers will be even lower than expected. beyond that, i don't have specific figures. i have not seen specific figures. but i anticipate we will be releasing data about enrollment by the end of the week. >> but you don't have a specific date? >> i do not. mark. >> thanks, jay. the president spoke last week about gaps and problems with the rollout of the website that need to be fixed. what are those gasp and what fixes would you -- >> well, he was referring to, and i'll quote, "i've
numbers. but let's remember what happened in massachusetts with romney care. he was their candidate last year. >> i've heard of him. >> when he was governor of massachusetts, he had romney care. only 123 people signed up in the first month of the massachusetts health care law. 123. that's all that signed up. or just 0.3% of the total who signed up by the end. 20% signed up in the last month of enrollment. so just look what happened with romney care. the potential head of their party last year, they had less than 1% in the first month, 0.3% to be exact. and in the last month, 20% because as it gets closer to the due date, that's when people make a rush. it's almost like christmas shopping. >> exactly. yeah. >> so it takes time. and there's a demand. we see a similar trend nationally. >> we do. and, you know, we all have to be frustrated with the website problems. and i'm sure there were some missed opportunities there, but in terms of being on track for this law to work and for people to sign up by the date they need to sign up, we are still on track to be able to make things work. and ev
. we have seen it work in massachusetts. that would be as -- as undisruptive as possible. in good faith fried to write the law so people could keep their care. we believe ultimately they will be better off when they're buying health care through the marketplace. they can access tax credits and benefiting for choice and competition. but obviously we didn't do a good enough job in terms of how we crafted the law. that's something that i regret. that's something that we are going to do everything we can to get fixed. in the meantime. >> that sound like you are supportive of this legislation, the various things that are out there? >> we are looking at a range of options. one thing i want to emphasize though, chuck. everybody is acting as if the existing market was working. fact of the matter is that a whole lot of people who are in this individual market who are big health care on their own, not getting it through their employer, they might be happy with it this year, and then suddenly next year the cost got jacked up by 15%, 20%. the average increase on premiums in this individual market f

to massachusetts and the abysmal numbers in the beginning and eventually -- >> 123. >> and the healthier young people come on board and suddenly everyone seems to enjoy what they have available. but, again, knowing the industry the way you do, wendell and having blown the wistle on some of the dirty business, can't say it enough here, what is your major concern now? >> the big concern is waiting for two and a half weeks. one of the things to keep in mind. this is politics. we will see even if we get to 99.9% operation for the website, those who don't want this to be -- to continue will look for that small number of people to be dissatisfied. we know this is going to be a political issue for some time to come. >> all right, thank you all. we appreciate your time. april carey, we'll talk with you soon. >> the woman who became the face of obama care's website, she's now stepping forward and she said she's now the victim of cyber bullying, one of the things we thought you should know. >>> plus, there's no food. water, we cannot live here. >> we're going to need to really scale up our operations on
, massachusetts may be doing the same. spending a whopping $500 a month just on heat. >> how much are your heating and gas bills draining you guys? >> it's significant. it's a vacation we're not taking or, you know, money that's not going to the college fund. >> reporter: but where you might see a warm, inviting home -- >> i brought my trusty thermal imaging camera for you. >> reporter: energy expert ben bixby is using that ghostbusters looking device to see money flying right out the doors and windows. >> we're looking at their front door. >> reporter: see those dark spots? that's cold air sneaking in through their front door. >> you had no idea? >> reporter: tip number one, weather strip your doors. >> this is a simple fix. it will take us just a couple minutes and he'll be warmer all winter. >> reporter: in the living room, we discover more cold air coming in through the windows. but another hidden heat culprit, check out the floors too. >> i can feel a draft. >> reporter: tip number two, seal your base boards and caulk the windows. >> like that? >> perfect. >> reporter: so far we spent $11 on
at this chart. in the first month of massachusetts enrollment, only 3% of the total signed up. but there's a fast ramp-up over the course of the enrollment period. we'll see the same thing here. this is how it works. >> there is a deadline, and the federal government is saying i'm going to find you and punish you. in my stays we've had thousands of people. because of the artable care act, it's not just individuals, but companies as well. they've got 1500 small businesses that get their health kay through this group set. that's no longer legal. it's now legal for chambers of commerce all over the country to actually help provide small businesses a way to get insurance. all of those are out. this is not some little plan i asked directly, but todd park, who's lating this could not answer me whether by the 15th of december they'll have the web side ready. >> what's interesting is i asked that same question today. i know that jeffrey zientz -- when i asked the i.t. people running it and actually have to do the coding, they said that's our goal, but we could guarantee -- >> but we're going to
happened in massachusetts and they said, look, massachusetts had problems with their rollout too, give it time. >> actually the real problem with the president's plan is not just the rollout. that's implementation and glitches of various kinds. it should have been done better but it wasn't. the real problem is the broken promise, the dishonesty. that's what's really striking. >> it's more that than bad management. >> sure. obviously the systems aren't working and they're frustrated but when the systems are working, millions of people will still lose the insurance they don't want. they're being asked to buy policies they don't want at prices they can't afford. >> do you think the president lied for personal gain? >> i think the president understands. he under they would loose their insurance. that was the nature of the entire product that they put forward. they knew that but they said, well, you can keep your insurance, period, and -- >> characterize that. >> it's dishonest. what starts twisted stays twisted and it's not going to be fixed until we fundamentally reshape obama care or rep
term massachusetts senator, elizabeth warren. >> i don't want to go to the united states senate to be there for women some of the time. i want to go to the united states senate to be there for women all of the time. >> reporter: she's another fast rising star who could make history and might threaten a clinton democratic coronation if they both run for the white house three years from now. >> hillary has run once before, is the inevitable nominee. another new fresh face came along with an issue and was able to kind of excite passions among the democratic rank and file, was able to do it. so i don't think it's crazy. >> reporter: warren is a former harvard professor, a progressive populist who burst on to the scene in 2008 when harry reid tapped her to oversee the controversial bank bailout. next, she urged president obama to form a government entity to protect consumers and their finances. the left wanted her to lead it but banks and republicans balked. >> it is so good to be here with so many progressives. i love it. >> reporter: instead, she took on massachusetts senator scott

[ female announcer ] ladies and gentlemen i'm here to say a few words about the power of baking stuff with nestle toll house morsels. you can heal a broken heart with a bundt cake. make a monday mornin' feel like a friday afternoon with some nestle toll house morsels. let's close our laptops and open our ovens. these things don't bake themselves. we have to bake them for one another. we can bake the world a better place one toll house cookie at a time. nestle. good food, good life. >>> hits keep coming for toronto mayor rob ford made famous or emphasis for admitting to smoking crack while drunk. new video of him in a rage using extremely t
in massachusetts for a couple of weeks so they could ram it through and did not pass one amendment to make it better for the american people and they should be held accountable. >> let me ask you this. let's say that they really do want to save health care for their constituents. it would be up to senator harry reid whether or not he'll bring these bills to the floor for a vote. right? do you think he'll do that or so part of this political cya you're talking about. >> harry reid is a piece of work, that's for sure, when it comes to these types of things. he's all politics all the time looking out for his party versus our country. he has had many opportunities to fix this. when i got there, when i was there and since that time all these bills, yeah, he has a choice. will he bring it up and weaken obama care on one hand or bring it up and try to offer cover for the people that are up for re-election. i anticipate he will bring it up. and probably they won't pass and then the members, you know, shaheen and landru and all the others can go back i tried to fix it but the republicans wouldn't
in massachusetts that enrolled only .3% or 123 people in the first month. >> still it's hard to look at yesterday's congressional hearing with the white house chief technology officer todd park feeling fully confident that a new deadline on a work website november 30th will be met. >> will it work on november 30th fully? >> the seem set a goal of having health care.gov function smoothly and the team is working hard to meet that goal. >> bottom line is they have to have it fixed. a few moments ago, i spoke with the majority within the house. kevin mccarthy and asked them about the fixes congress is considering to fulfill the president's broken promise, if you like your plan, you can keep it and whether republicans will bring that to the floor even if it's modified to pick up support. >> yeah. we are going to bring it to the floor friday. i count more on the house getting something done than the senate. many more bills get through the house than the senate. i see revolt in the democratic party over frustration and credibility over what's going on. you have feinstein who is not a target and not up f
is distributed as part of massachusetts opioid prevention program. >> it was targeted for high-risk injection drug users. we soon started learning about parents going to needle exchanges. >> today, they distribute the product to addicts, first responders, and learn to cope, a support group for parents of addicts. linda has been going to learn to cope meetings for the past nine years. >> nasal narcan, the overdose reversal drug is available at every meeting. if you're in this room, you should have narcan. >> they have distributed hundreds of kits to its members who have managed to reverse at least nine overdoses. >> tinging of the lips, fingernails, anything like that, also. if you -- >> it's ready to administer, and it will go up one nostril. >> you must, must, must have narcan if you have an addict. you must. absolutely. because the whole trick of it is to keep them alive until they finally get it. >> sanjay gupta reporting there. how about that? >>> coming up, some counties in colorado not really liking the new liberal initiatives in the state government, so they're thinking they might want
're anemic. as we look, though, at massachusetts, an example from '0 s '06. enrollment was slow there too, people procrastinating, signing up at the last minute. we fast forward to now and your home state of kentucky. it has emerged as a poster child for the south. we have more than 345,000 website visits, nearly 60,000 applications started and some 32,000 have enrolled. why is kentucky working so well? >> well, i think the governor made a decision very early on that we were going to do our own exchange, took advantage of the federal grant program to build the exchange, brought in very, very good people and made some very critical decisions early on that i think helped. one of them which the federal exchange didn't make was to allow people to browse the site and browse the plans without going through the application process. so to a certain extent we were lucky, but it was basically the commitment of the administration to make sure that it worked. when you're only dealing with one state and one set of providers and one set of insurance rules and one set of insurance companies, it's a lot
with all of the winds. just west of boston, weldly, massachusetts. trees down, power lines and power outages in that area. so much nicer today in boston for the red sox parade today. in flint, we talk about wind gusts about 45 miles per hour. and they had big issues, too. the video almost looks the same. but it's before and after the front goes through. either way. let's look at what happens today. you get the kicked-up winds. and lake erie, in this picture, is it going to be calmer? it will. but it will be colder, too. a second cold front. along the coast will be nice. philadelphia, 66. new york, 65. but here behind, fleuries mixing in for rains for parts like pittsburgh, erie, and buffalo and syracuse. a winter feel by sunday into monday. and then, the new storm out west is something we're watching. not that big of a rainmaker. but we think the big issue is going to be wind. along the coastline, you see as the low comes in. 60-plus-mile-per-hour winds there. seattle, between 60 and 40-mile-per-hour winds. that's something we'll be looking for to start the workweek. it's cold in the
's regretting the campaign he ran. he ran as a faux right winger. he's the massachusetts governor who was a centrist governor. i think he's looking at christie that can run the campaign he should have win. >> that would be real serendipity. christie wanted that job and romney obviously looked at him and found him too heavyweight, actually too big for the job. >> chris christie -- >> he's losing some weight. >> that conversation with kelly o'donnell. >> i had a conversation with him once where i made a stupid crack about his weight and he called me up and said i'm working on it. you can't not like a guy like that. who doesn't have weight problems. >> a lot of americans can relate to that. we've got three big races today, new york city mayor, bill de blasio against joe lhota. terry mcauliffe is several points ahead of ken cuccinelli and chris christie has a wide lead over barbara buono. but virginia, new jersey say a lot of the ballots for the heart of the republican party. the clintons are really making virginia their territory. >> exactexactly. >> but it's going to show the difference
at the republican plan, the only one we saw was romney care, massachusetts. that's right. that's where obama care emanated a lot of its ideas. so they can't quote that. going to have to leave it there. thank you for your time this evening. >> thanks a lot. >>> coming up, the billionaires right wingers bank rolling these creepy ads have a new plan to attack democrats today. >>> and get ready. it's almost time for tonight's edition of rand paul plagiarizes. no need to source this one. we got you again. next. [ female announcer ] who are we? we are the thinkers. the job jugglers. the up all-nighters. and the ones who turn ideas into action. we've made our passions our life's work. we strive for the moments where we can say, "i did it!" ♪ we are entrepreneurs who started it all... with a signature. legalzoom has helped start over 1 million businesses, turning dreamers into business owners. and we're here to help start yours. to get our adt security system. and one really big reason -- the house next door. our neighbor's house was broken into. luckily, her family wasn't there, but what if this happe
this is working. president obama last week in a speech in boston, massachusetts, talked about what was unfolding in the state of kentucky, and said that pretty much this is the model. well, let me tell you something. this is the man right here, who is making it happen in the state of kentucky. this is the man who understands the vision, and is making health care a reality for kentucky residents. i sat down with the governor of kentucky today, steve beshear. governor beshear has been a big part of obama care's success in the state. as soon as the law was passed, he saw the vision. they got to work on the infrastructure for the exchange. they're up and running and it's working. he's cut through all the negative misinformation, and all of the lies that have been out there about obama care, and clearly explained to us today why this law is good, it's working, and it's great for the country as a whole. >> congratulations. >> thank you very much. thanks for coming to kentucky. >> it's good to be here. why is it so smooth in kentucky? >> well, our folks are the real heroes here, ed. the people that wor
. however, then senator obama faced accusations of lifting lines from massachusetts governor duval patrick. do you think paul is going to be able to bounce back as obama did, or is this going to hurt him like it hurt biden? >> you know, we can't really remember anything that happened two minutes ago in politics, let alone three years from now in the 2016 election. i don't really think this is going to hurt paul, especially because we're not really seeing, you know, getting flak from republicans for this. democrats and journalists noticed he has been plagiarizing but i don't think he will really have to answer for this fully until you have sort of the republican base making an issue with paul. and maybe people will do that in a republican primary but right now, paul has sort of either side-stepped the issue -- he hasn't totally taken accountability just yet. >> no, he's blamed it on hacks and haters. hacks and haters he said to george stephanopoulos. >> ahe challenged me to a duel, hypothetically. >> do you think you would be able to win such a duel? are you handy with a musket? >> i never
, massachusetts right now. sasha eisenberg, author of "the secret science of winning campaigns" which thankfully is out in paper back. it's great to see you, my friend. i think the last time we talked was in the wake of the 2012 election. i woernd given the work you did and reporting you did in that election cycle whether you think any lessons have been learned on the right side of the aisle in terms of voter outrage? can we see any lessons in virginia? >> i've been really surprised. there's been a lot of lip service on the right starting with rnc postmortem report that came out this year, talking about the need to make better investments and the ground game, the use of data and analytics. i don't in talking to republicans at the national or local level see a lot of people who have developed the expertise to do that. this is difficult, sophisticated stuff. your normal sort of political operative staffer types don't have the skill set to do it. in the wake of the democrat's loss in 2004, they invest in a lot of new institutions to house data, do analysis, do testing at great costs that existed on
, polls will be closed in the state of new jersey, alabama, and massachusetts. back with more election results when we return. i started part-time, now i'm a manager.n. my employer matches my charitable giving. really. i get bonuses even working part-time. where i work, over 400 people are promoted every day. healthcare starting under $40 a month. i got education benefits. i work at walmart. i'm a pharmacist. sales associate. i manage produce. i work in logistics. there's more to walmart than you think. vo: opportunity. that's the real walmart. she'and you love her for it.ide. but your erectile dysfunction - that could be a question of blood flow. cialis tadalafil for daily use helps you be ready anytime the moment's right. you can be more confident in your ability to be ready. and the same cialis is the only daily ed tablet approved to treat ed and symptoms of bph, like needing to go frequently or urgently. tell your doctor about all your medical conditions and medications, and ask if your heart is healthy enough for sexual activity. do not take cialis if you take nitrates for chest
a proven model. we've seen it work in massachusetts that would be as undisruptive as possible. and in good faith tried to write the law in a way for people to keep their care. although we believe ultimately they're going to be better off when they're buying health care through the market places they can access tax credits and benefitting from more choice in competition. obviously we didn't do a good enough job in terms of how we drafted the law. that's something we're going to do everything we can to get fixed. >> by the way, that sounds like you're supportive of the legislation. the various things out there. >> we're looking at a range of options. one thing i want to emphasize is everybody is acting as if the existing market was working, and the fact of the matter is that a whole lot of people who were in this individual market who were buying health care on their own because they're not getting it through their employer, they might be happy with it this year. and then suddenly next year the cost got jacked up by 15%, 20%. the average increase on premiums in this individual market for som
period. in massachusetts where things were rolled out they had computer problems and they had a year for people to enroll. if that's the model, potentially you could have an extension of the enrollment period. >> of course if if you extend that, we begin to get into the problem that the young healthy haven't gotten involved in the marketplace and the exchanges. they're not paying premiums and, therefore, the sick vulnerable people with all these extra benefits are going to pay higher premiums. >> think of this. the idea is to get them signed up. think of all the things working against that now. staying on your parents plan until your 26. that takes a chunk of healthy people out of the potential buyer population for individual plans. worries about the security of the website if and when it finally gets up and running. there are all kinds of concerns about that expressed by responsible people. on top of that is the penalty if you decide not to buy a plan is light the first year. you add these things together and the possibility that if you lost your plan and you're relatively young and
memories of john f. kennedy? >> that is a big memory. every friday the president came to massachusetts with my father and all the grandchild, or the children or the cousins, whatever you call us, would rush to the helicopter and greet our fathers because we were so it gooded about seeing them usually the president would get into a golf court and we would pile on and he would run it up and down the hills as fast as he could and we would laugh and scream and think it was all so much fund. >> did you think of him as the president or jack? >> he was uncle jack to me until he was president but when he became the president that was very important and as you can imagine my father being the attorney general each night we would pray that my father would be the best attorney general ever and that uncle jack would be best president ever so there was the connection that he was the president and he had a lost important work to do. >> the day he died, your father gave you a letter. >> actually, this is the day that my uncle was buried, my father wrote me and you can imagine it was...he had the love
. they criteria the example of massachusetts wherein the first month of what was a year-long enrollment period, just 123 people signed up, which was just .3% of the entire number. perhaps more significantly right now, one of the bigger concerns for this white house is the scramble to try to fix the website, to try to improve the total number of individuals that sign up. the number by the cbo, the suggestion was that they wanted to have about 7 million people signed up over the course of the six-moen rollment period. but jeffrey zients acknowledged it was not really clear whether they would be all set by the end of the month, saying we are not where we need to be. we're not where we want to be, to use his exact language. >> and yet the president has given himself, as it were, that deadline of the end of this month, isn't he? >> yeah, that's exactly right. this has been something very important to the president over the weekend. white house aides confirmed to me, there was an unsparing dressing down of senior advisers by this president. two weeks after the enrollment, he said if he had known abo
, for example, noted that in the first month of sign-ups for the massachusetts version of health reform, only 100 people signed none the
, but they're better than the massachusetts numbers were in the first month. they're higher percentage of the uninsured who bought insurance. a lot of people are browsing. we know they're going to buy, much later. so those -- that's -- those are good numbers. i don't -- you know, it goes back to what the president said, and that now that we parse it, it wasn't true. and that's what's causing the trouble. if those -- if those representations hadn't been made, i don't think we would be having this controversy. but for president clinton to make it sound like, you know, it was written into the law that -- if you liked your policy you can keep it, to make it sound like the federal government made this promise, that's really not what happened. >> i also think stupidity and stubbornness are a horrible recipe. and so i don't know where else in people's lives they would fight to keep some crappy thing they have to pay monthly for when they are offered something better for the same price. >> that's not what's happening with everybody though of the. >> i a lot of people don't realize their plans
in massachusetts, which is probably the most instructive one, only 0.3% of the people who ultimately enrolled did so in the first month. the vast majority did it right before the deadline and most of the young people did it before the deadline. i just don't want to panic when we're only 30 days, 40 days into enrollment. we've got plenty of time for this thing to work and ultimately given the fact that we know it's an affordable product, especially for young people to have subsidies, they're going to end up signing up. i think a lot of this is just a political cloud created by republicans who never wanted this thing to work in the first place. in the end, we've got a product that sells. we know that in connecticut. >> do you have a sense of when, depending on what the numbers are, you'll either panic or breathe a sigh of relief and say, see, it is working. >> i think we're not there yet. we need to get well into next year as we start to look at the numbers as we come towards march before any of us have a sense of whether the website has had a significant hangover. but the fact is, is that i think
